Summary

Threshold has been working to assist the people of Cork with their housing problems since 1982. We have a particular emphasis on supporting those who are most disadvantaged.

This report summarises a research project carried out by Threshold’s Southern Region Advice Centre with regards to people living in the private rented sector and supported by the Rent Supplement Scheme. The work builds onprevious investigations into the impact of the rent supplement scheme on people at risk of homelessness. It looks at how the operation of the scheme, including tighter restrictions imposed in 2003, has affected recipients. While this research focuses on rent supplement recipients living in Cork City, the findings we believe would be replicated across the country.
